STAR WARSY STUFF [7:15]

Liam’s been playing Battlefront, the first. I’ve been playing Battlefront II again.

We saw Solo again. I have some thoughts about Enfys Nest’s theme and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. I make a mashup called The Good, the Bad and the Savareen (renamed after this episode was recorded).

Check out the video I made:

WHAT’S THAT SOUND? [16:55]

How did Ben Burtt make the sound for the Millennium Falcon?

NEWS [23:20]

Solo isn’t making as much money as projected. We talk about why that matters. Spoiler: It’s not the money.

In a year and a half, we’re told that there will be a single-player Star Wars video game: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I’ll believe it when I see it. And I’m hoping it’s not just a lightsaber game.

The Poe comic is ending.

And some people are not nice on the internet.

CANON NEWS [50:20]

What’s the deal with Han’s dice?

JOKE [53:10]

What did Kylo Ren say when Hux asked him if he turned up any rebels in the base on Crait?

STUMP THE LUMP! [54:20]

What type of Alien is Rio Durant?
What instrument does Beckett say he’s going to learn to play?

We’re recording from our backyard today, so you’ll get to hear cars and birds and airplanes and me taking drinks of beer and all sorts of outside noises. Here was the recording setup:

NEWS [2:00]

There’s another new Solo commercial/trailer. Check it out:

We talk about new stuff from it.

We also cover the new character posters: https://www.starwars.com/news/meet-the-crew-in-these-new-solo-a-star-wars-story-character-posters

Of note, this guy:

And new entries in the starwars.com databank: https://www.starwars.com/films/solo

We also cover the great news that Victoria Mahoney is going to be the second unit director on Episode IX!

RON HOWARD SHARES STUFF ON TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM [23:35]

Solo is in the can!

Also, that’s probably not Dr. Evazan that L3 is assaulting in that one trailer, after all. Chances are, he has something to do with droid fighting. Which L3 hates. Which brings us to our canon news…

CANON NEWS [26:30]

L3-37 is a proponent of droid rights. So we talk about rights quite a bit. So … let me know if you have any questions.

JOKE [40:45]

Who was Lando Calrissian’s favorite smuggler after that whole carbonite ordeal on Cloud City?

STUMP THE LUMP! [41:55]

Who says, “He’s quite clever you know … for a human being.”

Who is that character saying that about?
